Personally, I think it would be smart for HTC to not refresh the One this year.

What would be the point of refreshing the One with the Snapdragon 800, when their model for the next year would have a Snapdragon XXX?

The jump from the S4 pro to the S600 is a 40% jump. From the S600 to 800 is a 35% jump? Why not wait for the next revision that will be far more substantial.

How would you know what I understand? Since you need to be spoon-fed by hamdir, I don't think you qualify to pass judgements here.

It's pretty simple here. Same standard 1/3-inch sensor which has 4 million pixels instead of 8 million or 13 million. So, obviously each individual pixel size increases. Yea, theoretically better s/n ratio. If it takes someone else to spoon-fed you this logic, you need to do something.

BTW, don't forget that you will be losing detail in properly exposed environments due to low pixel count. But I guess someone has tell you that.

H5D has a 40/50MP sensor. It must be bad because there are so many pixels!

EDIT: Since RX100 was mentioned in the material, I thought it would be a good idea to discuss on it.

Both RX100 and and the Nikon J1 has exact same sensor size (1-inch). Due to low resolution of J1 sensor, the pixel pitch or the pixel size were higher, or conversely lower pixel density. Going by pure numbers, it would seem that J1 is better than RX100. Just to show that these pixel size numbers alone doesn't mean everything. It's just one parameter.

Re: HTC Flagship 2013 - HTC One - Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 600 - Mega Information Thread
Umm, this whole ultrapixel thing is about having 3 4mp sensors layered on one chip. Thus giving each, larger, pixel a higher level of detail.

i must be mistaken, i thought that they confirmed it wasn't 3x 4MP sensors layered?

According to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhlB4IZH9Ms around the 3:10 mark its 2x 4MP sensors.

I managed quite nicely before ever reading a single post by him and I understand what all of it means. Higher pixel count isn't always better. I don't think people by smartphones because it has the highest mp camera. If they are that into photography they will buy a proper camera. Its as simple as that. Most of these pictures won't be blown up to billboard size to be able to see every pixel. If each pixel has higher detail laced to it, it should in theory be as good as an 8 mp camera. I honestly think the camera on my inspire isn't that great and is 8mp. Honestly the Canera is not a selling point to me.

To each his own. I'm done debating the camera and don't accuse me of being spoon fed. I only said what I said because the fact that he can put more eloquently what I cannot and always has sources that we normal users don't.

Edit: At least we can agree on that point. You obviously feel strongly about the sensor being used and I can respect that fully.

that's a lot more useful no? and goes to show how all this needs to be explained better to the average user, megapixels is not everything

The paint adds the final touch of class, but I'm sorry I will be dead worried with it

Look like the One X I couldn't make up my mind until I had both in my hands

As an owner of a dead sexy BLACK One V, that has been "naked " in my pocket since purchase in August with nary a scratch......I will be buying the black "One "

My One V always turns heads, isheep especially love drooling over it.

No menu button ?

Do you know if it is possible to desactive the 3 dot menu bar (that takes some place on the screen) and assign the menu on a button ?

How to ?

Believe I've been saying that for awhile....

It will be impossible for HTC to NOT release a device with that SoC and also NOT be one of the first OEMs to do so...

You really should read up on the S800... Its a big jump overall in the big picture.

Integrated modems unlike the S600 which requires a MDM chip to handle radios and such, its a newer process SoC, quick charge, voice action, ...oh and it can encode/decode 4k HD, plus a handful of other things....

Exactly. I was all in for the black too but then I realized that the design details on the back are not that visible. Can't really decide for now.

I've been reading a lot of bashing on the One's design. Critics say it's like this



What you guys think?
